Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids
Curated by Moon Duo
In the early 70’s, free-jazz evangelists Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids sprung from the tutelage of the great Cecil Taylor. Drawing furthermore from the vast cosmos of Fela Kuti, Pharaoh Sanders and Sun Ra, the Pyramids’ holistic pilgrimage comes with a powerful mission: celebrating our equality from a Pan-African center of gravity. In 2007, three decades in after disbanding the Pyramids, Ackamoor and his brethren returned in full glory, releasing ‘We Be All Africans’, ‘Otherworldly’ and ‘An Angel Fell’ in prolific succession.
